Awkward ....

The five stars awarded to the app don’t tell the true story - all five ‘lit up’ before I could make a correction. I like the app, but not that much!

I find navigating the pages clumsy - they don’t flow. I’m also a digital subscriber to the Daily Telegraph and recommend your app designers have a look at it and see if they can’t improve on the ease of navigation.

Don’t be ‘precious’ - see how the app might be improved ....

Helps me quickly identify what I want to read. The Font usedis easier t read than the hard hard copy. The role ofas a Carer to my spouse. Provides less time or opportunity to read compared with when I first retired and the new status arrived in my life hence very appreciative of the summary layout of contents.

Functional, but frustrating

The App allows you to read the CT. However, it closes down every time you leave (not close) the App, and then takes an age to re-load.
So, functional, but needs work.
